Questions?? Upgrades for all-stock Cyclone S

To all experienced RC peeps,

I am planning to just do a few mid-level upgrades on my stock Cyclone S which I primarily use for drifting and some touring. Looking to purchase these items below, would appreciate any kind of feedback since I am new to this hobby.

1) Novak GTB Brushless ESC - Tekin LRP Speedpassion
2) Novak Velociti 4.5R Brushless motor - Tekin LRP

When regards to upgrading servos, what would be the best practical upgrade for servo? Thanks in advance!

4.5 motor is no mid level upgrade. If its primarily used for drifting, a 10.5 or 8.5 is good enough. Work on upgrading the drive-train first

Would it be cheaper to just by a used Cyclone TC or similar than spend big $$$ upgrading an old shoe
Genuine Upgrades cost big $$$, unless you buy the cheaper brands of parts that are often as soft as butter .

I sold my CycloneS & bought a much nicer(looking) Cyclone TC for only an extra $50 .
